ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the efforts of the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush to launch a more aggressive Iran policy to challenge Tehran's suspected misbehavior across the Middle East. Some factors that drive the policy are the emergence of a Saudi-led coalition of Sunni Arab governments and Israel. The policy aims to expose and confront Iranian networks that are suspected to be supplying radical proxies in Iraq. The administration believes that Iran plays a major role in destabilizing the region.
